    Thank you for taking the time to submit your ideas. We truly value our relationship with you and appreciate your willingness to share details about your experience, recommendations and ideas.

    IBM has evaluated this request and determined that it cannot be implemented at this time or does not align with our current strategy or roadmap. This idea sounds more like a support issue that should be raised with MySQL. Turbonomic does support using MySQL 8 as an external database, however the administration and function of the external database is beyond the scope of what the Turbonomic is designed to do or supports.

    If you have any additional feedback about this idea or if there is something else that should be considered, then reply to this message to continue the conversation. If you want your request to be considered once again, submit a new idea no sooner than six months time.
